Just how solid is our democratic right to challenge and criticize government policies we don’t agree with? Moving from the teenage sisters detained for 36 hours without charge, to a war veteran arrested for wearing an anti-Bush t-shirt, this hell-raising, irreverent documentary charts countless examples of lost civil liberties over the last ten years in Britain.
“Bold, fearless and blackly funny, this film should be compulsory viewing.” Dazed and Confused.
